Manchester United keeps win streak alive vs. Hull City, on brink of EFL Cup final
The Red Devils are red hot at the moment
In its first 22 games of the season in all competitions, Manchester United was far from efficient and won just 11 times. With expectations as high as can be with big-time talent added to the squad like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba, the team failed to reach expectations under Jose Mourinho. The attack was far from prolific, Pogba couldn't get going and the defense was a mess.
Fast forward a month later, and oh how things have changed.
Manchester United beat Hull City on Tuesday, 2-0, in the EFL Cup semifinal first leg. It's the Red Devils' ninth win in a row in all competitions. United is unbeaten in its last 15 games, winning 12 of them. In those nine consecutive wins, United has allowed just three goals and looks to have turned the corner.
The form continued on Tuesday -- starting with Juan Mata, who opened the scoring in the 56th minute with an attentive shot.
Marouane Fellaini then put it away in the 87th with a header.
Another win, another step forward for the Red Devils. How are you feeling, Mou?
